I agree with what has been said so far regarding employees satisfaction. I’m currently an intern at LOVOO (Berlin) and I can only be happy of the flexible times, free breakfast, fossball in the office and other benefits the company gives. Moreover respect among peers and the chance to express your ideas are important factors, too. The objectives have to be , of course, challenging for every employee as well. What I feel should be stressed is the possibility of growth and that every team member works in the same place. These two aspects are interconnected in the end. To meet physically your coworkers and have lunch with them contributes significantly to bond the team and most of all can reduce the stress if there were some problems among team members. Indeed to be working all in the same office has been proven to give equal possibility to all employees to be promoted and follow seminars.
p.s. here an experiment on working from home, productivity and promotion

Really nice to meet you. I´m Guglielmo Schenardi, 20 years old. I´m attending the last year of ESCP bachelor in management in Berlin after being in London and Madrid.
I always wanted to participate to SVST and it´s a dream that becomes true. I´ve known Paolo from 4 years and I discovered the tour at the same time.
A part from studying I have two start-ups and one football tournament. The football tournament is 7 cup and is the biggest football 7 tournament with age restrictions in Genoa. It takes place once a year in April. The first start-up has the goal to provide safe accommodation to always changing campus ESCP students. I founded it in 2017 and now I´m managing 3 flats and multiple rooms in London and Madrid for a total of 40 students.
The newest one, and in my opinion the most challenging and important, is SCHE days. SCHE days is a new conference format that addresses Science Communication High-tech and Entrepreneurship. The objective is to inspire Genoa´s students allowing them to speak with the best start ups and experts in Europe. The local authorities, innovators and investors are also present to create a new network that will encourage a new start up environment in our city.
Joining the Mask conversation, I would like to explain my point of view through comparing the CEO of Tesla with a more basic figure like Mourinho, Manchester United manager. They are both really motivated on what they are doing, the demand the 110% to their employees and they are both a strong character. Moreover the Portuguese and the American both like to battle like there is no tomorrow and at a certain point they are cut out by their own employees/players (Real Madrid- Pay Pal). The best part of them, in my opinion, is that they are really strategic managers. Indeed they know perfectly how to use media to take the pressure off a real problem of the company. As Mourinho goes in the press conference shouting and insulting when the team goes bad, the same does Musk when the company can´t delivery in time the orders. The days after the press is discussing about Mourinho´s conference and Musk´s tweet and not about poor performance of the team/company.
Concluding I think that Tesla should be fined following the rules. In any case the little amount they will actually pay was just a well-planned collateral damage of a bigger picture.
